on Boy Scouts
To me, the larger issue is the Mormon Church's (cult) involvement in the Boy Scouts. I was shocked, but not surprised, to learn how pervasive the Mormon involvement in the BoyScouts has become. Clearly they are using the Boy Scouts as a proselytizing tool to recruit more people into the church, and I am convinced that the abuse was played down by the Church to avoid harming the Church and its recruitment efforts, at the cost of continued abuse to innocent victims. I would never let my son get near an organization that has so clearly become a religious arm, although I treasure my own Boy Scout experience. How far the organization has fallen. Until the organization excludes direct religious involvement and control like this, this type of abuse is at great risk to reoccur.
